I need to make my currently english only app support chinese.

Labels, menus in Chinese.
Users to enter data in Chinese (which is stored in an MS SQL db)
Print reports and operate an asp.net app in chinese.

Anyone know any good resources to get me going?

Hi glennkerr

There are only a few requirements to have Chinese characters displayed an an app, ASP or Win.

- You need to have a font available which supports Chinese (I use "Arial Unicode MS" which comes with Office)
- In Control Panel set in Regional and Language Options / Languages / Install files for East Asian Languages. (I think this also installs Asian extensions to the common fonts. Check with Windows Character Map.

That's all. Since DotNet supports full Unicode it is easy.
